Nash Morgan was always known as the good Morgan brother, with a smile and a wink for everyone. But now, this chief of police is recovering from being shot and his Southern charm has been overshadowed by panic attacks and nightmares. He feels like a broody shell of the man he once was. Nash isn’t about to let anyone in his life know he’s struggling. But his new next-door neighbor, smart and sexy Lina, sees his shadows. As a rule, she’s not a fan of physical contact unless she initiates it, but for some reason Nash’s touch is different. He feels it too. The physical connection between them is incendiary, grounding him and making her wonder if exploring it is worth the risk.

Too bad Lina’s got secrets of her own, and if Nash finds out the real reason she’s in town, he’ll never forgive her. Besides, she doesn’t do relationships. Ever. A hot, short-term fling with a local cop? Absolutely. Sign her up. A relationship with a man who expects her to plant roots? No freaking way. Once she gets what she’s after, she has no intention of sticking around. But Knockemout has a way of getting under people’s skin. And once Nash decides to make Lina his, he’s not about to be dissuaded…even if it means facing the danger that nearly killed him.

Micky’s 5 star review

Baggage in the middle
Chemistry trumps baggage
Giggling one minute, tearing up the next

Things We Hide From The Light was one of those rare reads that had me in love by a few chapters. I had a sense I was going to love the book front to back; and I did. Knockemout only gets better in my opinion, with Nash and Lina taking the spotlight and owning it.

If you were interested in Nash in book one (how could you not be), you’ll be surprised to find him somewhat changed in this book. I didn’t spend that much time thinking about Lina in the first installment but she owned the pages of this one. Lina was strong, determined and thrived on independence to a fault. The walls these two had to climb were pretty huge and the pages just melted away through their story.

There was a mystery and high stakes going on in the background; it had me worrying throughout for these characters and it got pretty tense towards the end. The culmination had me a mushy, leaky-faced mess but it was so worth the emotional ride.

There was plenty of the other beloved Knockemout characters in book two, so if you’re needing more Knox and Naomi or want to be invested ready for book three, Lucian and Sloane have you covered. This series truly makes found family the heart of everything, connecting the dots with the blood ties too.

“You take away the dark, the cold. And you remind me what it’s like to want to be here.”

Thank you Hodder Books for the review copy.
